The constraints of the theater space dictates the scenography. A high small frontal stage, the audience on two levels. We decide to increase the depth, and to create a bi-frontality, means half of the audience on a row of seats on stage and the possibility to see the performance from two sides. The classical back space becomes lateral as the decor has to take place on the left and on the right, with some elements coming in the middle of the space and blocking it. One side sees, not the other one.
